Florida High teens participate in EMS simulation to test their health science skills


Zoie Bowden, Sierra Das and Jordyn Lee recently gained a new appreciation for what emergency responders go through every day. The three teenagers, all students at Florida High in Tallahassee, Fla., spent the day crammed in the back of an ambulance during an intense simulation designed to test the skills they learned in the school's health science program. Lynn Wicker, Florida High's director, said the program has been well-received by students, who are now seriously considering EMS careers. The simulation, which started with a horrific car crash scene, was the perfect supplement to the in-class training the students received, she said. "It's a very hands-on, out-in-the-field type of program in addition to the training they receive in the classroom," she said. "It's awesome students are able to get out there and make sure this is a field they want to go into." more
